Pumpkin Cookies

  • 1 cup vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour

Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup vegan cream cheese
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut milk


  1. Start by combining the butter, egg, vanilla, and sugars in a stand mixer. Cream them together on low for 30 seconds.

  2. Increase the speed to medium and blend for 1 minute.
  3. Add the salt, pumpkin pie spice, pureed pumpkin, baking soda, and xanthan gum. Blend on medium/low for 30 seconds.
  4. Turn the mixer off, add the flour and blend on low for 15 seconds, scrape the sides and then blend on medium for about 1 minute.
  5. Chill the dough for 20 minutes. While the dough is chilling preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop the cookie dough onto it with a cookie dough scooper spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes.

  6. Allow the cookies to cool and then make the frosting by adding the cream cheese and butter to a stand mixer for 30 seconds, scrape the sides and then add the powdered sugar, maple extract, cinnamon and coconut milk. Blend on medium speed for 1 minute scraping the sides halfway through. Once the cookies are cool frost and serve. Store in the fridge. Enjoy
